>>52908838 > Built in fan speed controller > Built in turbo boost disabler > Built in Spectacle like feature > Auto-hide the title bar on every app (just like QuickTime does) > Moar gaems support Then it would be the perfect OS.
>>52909454 Lots of those comments are really out of date, Russell's comment at the start for example "I'd kill for Snow iOS8 and Snow Yosemite", that's exactly what we got with iOS9 and 10.11. Sure iTunes and a handful of other apps still suck, notably iOS Music has gotten worse since iOS8, but the OSes are pretty solid.
did you do a clean install? the reason old installs that may have been upgraded several times before, then upgarded to el capitan are slow is because of the new security features, such as sandboxing.
mine was pretty slow for a few weeks and didn't get better. just did a clean install on my rmbp late 2013, 15 inch after backing up. shit flies now. it's been a few months too so i can confirm the clean install fixes it.
>>52911250 Anyone using OSX for a while has gotten adept at dragging from one folder to another. OSX's 'popping' of folders when you hover over them makes it trivial. It's really only an issue for Windows users
>>52908997 >I haven't used OSX in a while, but if it still minimized windows into a separate dock icon instead of into the the app icon, like windows does, then that needs to be changed. Hate to make you look dumb but the option to do that has been around since Cheetah (10.0)
>>52908838 Honestly, the biggest issue OSX faces is awful support for graphics. They always ran a custom opengl implementation, and it was always the odd one out. If you have an opengl port of your game on windows, running it on linux is easy. But OSX? Prepare for trouble.
And now they've decided to go their own way with metal, opengl is going to be even worse on OSX. Vulkan should be cross platform, but I bet apple will sit tight and try and shove metal down peoples throats for as long as possible.
Also subjective, but I don't like the unified menu thing, where it only applies to the active application. I don't see how it's good usability.

>>52911383 >Also subjective, but I don't like the unified menu thing, where it only applies to the active application. I don't see how it's good usability. I can't stand not having it, it's one of the few things keeping me from dropping OS X
>>52911492 I just don't see the point. If you are only using one fullscreen maximized window, it doesn't make a difference. But if you are using multiple windows, instead of just clicking on the other menu, I have to highlight the window, THEN select the menu. I fail to see any advantages.
First 10 things I thought up. There is much, much more.
1. Fix color profiles and font smoothing on external monitors. They are literally programmed not to work on non-apple monitors. It makes my eyes bleed. 2. Fix that horse shit when you click the scroll bar and the fucking window moves. What the fuck Apple? 3. Add the trivial feature that could be programmed in two seconds to move/remove the top bar. It boxes you in and makes me claustrophobic. 4. Fuck the dock. Even something like windows XP would be 10x better. Seriously. 5. Get rid of "monitors are separate spaces" so Apple notices that multiple monitors with this disabled is absolutely 100% fucking broken, and the functionality when this is enabled is fucking stupid (windows don't span monitors, etc) 6. Stop the machine from going to sleep when the lid is closed, or at least provide an option for this, christ. 7. And stop removing god damn useful configurable options in every release. It doesn't make things simpler. People are using those options. 8. Implement Home, End, Page up, and Page down to actually do what the Home, end, page up/down do on every other OS in the entire universe. 9. Switch control and command. The jokes gone on long enough. 10. Remove "scaling" options in display settings. What the actual fuck is that? Just give me a DPI setting.
a lot of the things that power users would like to remove from OS X are things that older people and clueless people that buy macs because >hurrdurr apple wouldn't be able to live without. like >>52908940 for example. i worked at an apple reseller and they made like $120 off of removing temp files or some shit, and charged $70 to reinstall the OS, $20 to restore iphones/pads/pods. like the money to be made if they allowed the default apps to be removed? "where'd my safari go?" "i can't find the calculator!!!" like people delete shit on accident all the time, god knows it's eventually gonna be a useful app
one thing i would appreciate is to not fuck me over. i spent too much money on a dock and a 4k monitor for my laptop to go into fuzzy 2560x1440 every other restart and my usb to eth adapter to stop working through my hub (support was broken by el capitan)
>>52911565 >9. Switch control and command. The jokes gone on long enough. Command over control is fucking great. Your OS uses Command for keybindings so you have Control free for everything in the terminal, let alone the positioning is just more ergonomic.
Seriously what is that shit. It's completely inconsistent with the rest of the operating system. Why do your books require a separate program, but applications and videos are handled by a music player? Why is editing metadata like pulling teeth, when iTunes already has a perfectly usable means of doing so?
There must be some sort of hidden agenda behind it, because there's no way they'd go out of their way to make something this bad. I think it's supposed to goad you into buying books like a good goy, so you don't have to worry about organizing your collection of pdfs.
>>52911673 I actually like iBooks. I was reading one of my textbooks on my phone, highlighting key points I wanted to have an easy reference to. Since I use the program with my cloud account, when I pulled the book up on my desktop, my notes and highlights carried over. So that was pretty neat. Idk what there is to dislike about it; an eReader is an eReader.
Some stuff that would need to happen for me to enjoy using it, but will actually never happen:
Open source the entire OS Modern filesystem by default, i.e. not HFS+ or an kludge update to it Powerful package management ala macports or homebrew, run with the help of the community Every package currently using OpenSSL is instead built against libressl or boringssl OpenGL needs to be improved Vulkan rather than Metal as the future, I don't give a fuck about their mobile strategy Update their userland, likely fixed if they include proper package management by default Un-fuck dtrace (SIP needs to be partially disabled for it to work since 10.11, also the p_lnotattach flag is beyond retarded) Finder needs a lot of work Focus more on security
